What is the Shipping Cost?
We get a lot of questions about shipping when it comes to your custom T Shirts, and one of the most frequently asked questions is about shipping costs.
And rightly so.
You don’t want to pay too much when it comes to shipping. That’s an added expense.
Traditionally, shipping cost is based on how far it will go, how fast you need it, and the size and weight of the package.
However, we know that the cost of shipping is important to you and your t-shirt business. So there are a few ways that we try to help reduce those shipping costs, but at the same time, still get your packages to you fast.
Of course, the least expensive shipping method is ground. Most of our packages weigh about 2-5 pounds (the carriers always charge for the minimum weight of 2 pounds) and will have a minimum cost of about $12.
So we take that minimum shipping cost, and apply it to all of your orders for a special flat rate, no matter how far it’s going or how heavy it is.
That’s just one of the ways that we are trying to help reduce your shipping costs.
Another way we help you reduce shipping costs is with the option of grouping your orders together.
If you have orders shipping over several days, you can decide if they should be grouped to leave with the latest package or shipped separately based on your time needs.
Just let your dealer service representative know what works best for you, or add it in the notes of your online orders.
Types of Packaging
There are kinds of box sizes. We try to pick the packaging that will protect your items the best way possible !
We also try to use as much recyclable items as possible to help keep your items safe as well the environment.
Faster Shipping Options
When 2 days is not fast enough, there are faster shipping options available.
If you need your package guaranteed overnight, you will need to use a Next Day Air service. There are two types of next day air services—next day morning or next day afternoon.
The morning service costs more and will deliver your package by 10:30 am to most commercial addresses. If you are located in a residential or rural area, this package should arrive by noon.
The typical cost for a 2-5 pound package sent Next Day Morning is approximately $30-$35.
The second type of air service saves a little money and is Next Day Afternoon. To commercial addresses in most cities, this arrives by 3:30 but can arrive anytime during their delivery day to rural and residential addresses.
The typical cost for a Next Day Afternoon delivery weighing 2-5 pounds is about $25-$30.
In most areas, Saturday Delivery is an option. This is also an upgraded service if you would like to pay for this expedited delivery.
Saturday Delivery is available in most areas, but not in some cases it is not, so you will need to know if it is available for your location.
With the popularity of Amazon online shopping, we are accustomed to getting our packages almost any day and time. Amazon typically has their own delivery fleet that makes this available to us.
However, through standard shipping carriers like UPS, FedEx, etc., Saturday and Sunday are not standard delivery days.
So when you are planning your package delivery date, you will want to include business days only, Monday through Friday.
For example, if your order shipped Thursday, you will not get your package on Saturday. It will arrive Monday.
This is important to keep in mind if you need your transfers on a certain deadline. You will need to upgrade your delivery to Next Day Air or Saturday Delivery.
There are a lot of carries out there, such as USPS,FEDEX, DHL and a host of other company out there including common carriers.
We ship all of our packages via USPS AND FEDEX and UPS.
